Product: Geotube® Dewatering Technology
A rural community was faced with limited space and resources at their local wastewater treatment plant. They needed a low-cost, low-labor dewatering and removal system for small volumes of biosolids.
The Geotube® MDS mobile dewatering system proved to be a perfect fit for this community [photo 1]. Geotube® MDS was implemented to provide a simple, mobile method for small volume sludge dewatering and removal [photo 2].
A Geotube® unit was placed in a standard 30 cubic yard roll-off container. The installation was quick and easy. Wooden pallets were placed underneath the unit to enhance drainage and provide a reservoir for effluent [photo 3]. The Geotube® unit was equipped with the factory-installed GP-4 filling port connection [photo 4]. This allowed for the use of standard plumbing fittings.
This mobile dewatering system worked well and required no secondary handling of the solids. Once the containment and dewatering was complete, the roll-off container was removed. The waste materials were taken to a landfill, unloaded, and dumped for disposal [photo 8].
